Previously Director of Strategic Development and Operations at Bradford Cathedral, Amanda succeeds Philip Davies, who has retired from the position.

She previously had a distinguished career in the Armed Forces that saw her serve with the Royal Irish Regiment and the Royal Army Medical Corps.

Amanda loves all outdoor activities especially hill walking, running and cycling. Her most recent adventure was an expedition to walk part of the Camino De Santiago.

On Amanda’s appointment, the Very Reverend Andrew Tremlett, Dean of Durham says, “We are delighted to welcome Amanda as our new Chapter Clerk and Chief Operating Officer. There was an extremely strong field of candidates with many applicants excited by the prospect of working at ‘the best Cathedral on planet earth’, as it is famously described by writer Bill Bryson.”

Amanda Anderson says, “I feel very privileged and humbled to have been selected to lead the talented management team in the truly magnificent and unique setting that is Durham Cathedral. I am looking forward to utilising my skills to work collaboratively with the Dean, Chapter and staff in order to fulfil Durham Cathedral’s vision to share our faith and heritage globally, and to empower people to transform the communities in which we live and serve.”

Amanda is looking forward to working in North East England and exploring the exceptional countryside the region has to offer.
